The paper’s annual food issue is out this weekend, and it’s equal parts locavore and globe-trotting. Mark Bittman finds out if happy meals are possible at the new wave of meatless fast food chains, while Red Rooster’s staff lines up for a class photo. One feature explores the innards of the Portland Meat Collective; there are some dry-aged kitchen horror stories from New York’s top chefs; and you can also learn all about Eric Ripert’s secret weapon, a spice wizard who can put together custom high-end blends based on your childhood memories. Interactive features abound; take a full look here. [NYTM]
